Western Travel - Heritage Farmstead Museum (Part Nineteen) - Plano, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Welcome to my weekly column #TravelTuesday featuring places I've discovered during my research trips or just wandering around in historical areas. I hope you enjoy my discoveries.

Last week we saw the barn outside the Farrell-Wilson House. Today we'll take a look at the small schoolhouse on the property.

Outside view of the one-room schoolhouse. At the time I visited, it was being partially used as holiday decoration storage.

Overall view of the inside of the school. As with most schools during this time period, it appears to have been shared with Sunday church meetings (notice the organ in the front corner). And it also features the standard central coal-burning heating stove.

A closer look at the stove set on a small riser. It's rather small - large enough to boil a single pot of coffee. The coal bucket and shovel rest in front of it.

A rack to hold the children's hats.
